Partition not Resized when a "Scale" Option is Used

Problem:

A partition does not scale when the Scale to Fit (/x) or Scale to Target (/stt) option is used.

Cause:

This can be caused by the partition being much smaller than the original physical drive. Automatic scaling restrictions are enabled by default and prevent the partition from being resized.

Solution:

Disable the Automatic Scaling Restrictions option in Settings (if using the command line, use the /asr:0 parameter).

When enabled, the Automatic Scaling Restrictions option prevents small partitions from being automatically scaled when restoring or copying a full drive. Partitions with a size of 15GiB or 1/8 the drive size (whichever is less) or smaller will not be scaled when restoring a full drive image or copying a full drive. This provides an automatic method to avoid scaling system reserved, recovery, and utility partitions to larger sizes when upgrading to a larger drive.
